Explosions In The Sky - Take Care, Take Care, Take Care [2 LP] (Deluxe 10-panel quadruple gatefold, poster, 4th side is etched, postcard)


$ 30.98 


If you're anything like us, you've been waiting for this day since about a year after the release of their last album. Four years is a long time to wait for a new EITS album, and we've pulled out all the stops to make it as worth the wait as possible. Aside from being a strong contender for their best album, it's packaged in the most outrageously deluxe artwork we've dared since the Eluvium box set. Housed (literally, it's a house) in a 10-panel quadruple gatefold cardboard jacket, with an enormous 18-panel full-color double-sided poster, and a full-color double-sided postcard - then all of that is tucked neatly inside of a full-color double-sided slipcase! The vinyl comes in THREE different artwork variants - the interiors of artwork are different colors. While supplies last, there are 3 different colored vinyl variants that match the corresponding colors of artwork. There's also a killer engraving on Side D. Words can't express how over-the-top beautiful this thing is, so soon enough we'll have to make a video to show everybody. Trust us, it's bananas.

In the four years since the release of Explosions In The
Sky's previous album, All of a Sudden I Miss Everyone,
they've amassed a steady stream of unlikely
achievements for a band most known for stirring
instrumentals that often push the 10 minute mark. They
toured with The Flaming Lips, headlined a sold-out
Central Park concert, performed on the legendary Austin
City Limits television program, and curated the
world-renowned ATP Festival - all with the humble
resolve of a band who still hauls all of their own gear on
and off the stage every night. And let's not forget their
indelible impact on the cultural landscape of film and
television since their breakthrough score for Friday Night
Lights marked an aesthetic shift towards evocative,
real-life grittiness in mainstream cinema.
On their fifth album, Take Care, Take Care, Take Care,
the band take some of their greatest creative leaps yet,
experimenting with layers of haunting, unplaceable
sounds, euphoric vocals, classical guitar, body
percussion, Japanese singing bowls and more. With
solitary focus and collaborative vision, each instrument
clearly exudes the spirit and inspiration of its player,
squeezing more expression and lyricism out of guitars
and drums than most singers could ever conjure with
their voices.
